Whats with all the rivalries these days? I know, such as?

Bush Vs. Iran
Fiddy(Fifty) Cent vs. Kanye West
Scott Storch vs. Timbaland

Out of all these three, the last two only interest me.

Bush vs. Iran

Someone surely is telling me a joke. It isn't even a contest. Put a 220 pound heavyweight versus a 120 pound lightweight boxer, barring a nut punch, tell me who is going to come out on top? Not worth more than a couple of sentences.

Fiddy v. Kanye

This is definitely one of the slickest rivalries out there today. Who cares if the whole thing is a PR stunt, which it probably is. Kanye produces some really sick records. Almost every song he touches turns out to be a hit. Fiddy, on the other hand, stomps Kanye into the ground based on the all important $ metric. I believe he made something like three times the cash that Kanye made. Who wins? Right now Kanye has better songs, but Fiddy will translate his effort to cash better. And Fiddy creates hot club songs! Fiddy wins!

Scott Storch v. Timbaland

Scott Storch is this geeky white Jewish boy who came from nowhere to create hits like "Candy Shop" and "Just a Lil' Bit" by 50 Cent, "Turn It Up" by Paris Hilton, "Poppin' Them Thangs" by G-Unit, "Let Me Love You" by Mario, "Playa's Only" by R. Kelly (featuring The Game), "Lock U Down" by Mýa, as well as "Naughty Girl"and "Baby Boy", both by Beyoncé .

K, thats a really hot resume.

So what has Timbaland done? "Promiscuous", "Maneater", "All Good Things (Come to an End)" and "Say It Right" by Nelly Furtado, and Justin Timberlake’s "SexyBack", "My Love" and "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around Interlude", The way I are - Keri hilson, DOE.

Timbaland has thrown a couple of punches, uppercuts, even a knockdown. I'd say it's a draw, but Timbaland has the edge due to the sheer hotness of all his recent songs.
